Human Default by Gianluca Traina

Juxtapoz // Monday, July 30, 2012
Well this is a good way to kick off the week, the amazing "skin dress" concept from Italian artist Gianluca Traina called Human Default. We were trying to figure out if the work was a painting or sculpture, but from what we can tell, its a photo manipulation. We still approve.

Blu in Ordes, Spain

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 27, 2012
We can only assume that Italian muralist, Blu, is a healthy man with a good juicer. For the DesordesCreativas festival in Ordes, Spain, Blu painted this odd to healthy eating and vegetarian lifestyle. Thousands of veggies and fruits, all getting ready, excited, to jump into the blender of life. A good smoothie is born. 

Red Tights by Angela C

Erotica // Friday, July 27, 2012
We don't know much about Italian photographer Angela C, but we like what we see in this shot of a girl in nothing but tights. A nice play between which parts of the body are revealed and concealed shows that sometimes what's left unseen becomes all the more titillating.

The World's First Lego Colosseum by Ryan McNaught

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 13, 2012
We actually reallly like the size here in the construction of the world's first Lego Colosseum, created by certified Lego builder, Ryan McNaught. Over 200.000 bricks were needed to create this Roman scene and structure, and you even get the outdoor pavillions and walkways with gladiators and rulers surrounding the great Colosseum.

Paintings by Fulvio di Piazza

Juxtapoz // Sunday, July 08, 2012
Back in 2010, when we first saw the work of Palmero, Italy based fine artist, Fulvio di Piazza, we knew there was something special going on. Now, di Piazza has a new solo show back at Jonathan LeVine Gallery, full of oil on canvas surreal mindwarps, based on the economic writings of Jeremy Rifkin, and his 1980 book, Entropy.

"Beauty Behind the Corner": Site Specific Fashion @ FAME Festival

Juxtapoz // Thursday, July 05, 2012
The people/person at Studio Cromie in Grottaglie, Italy who organize and produce the fantastic public art festival, FAME, have just started a site-specific project of tee-shirts made in limited numbers at the Studio Cromie space. If you have ever been to Grottaglie, then you know how distinct and fantastic the various walls and buildings are, and Studio Cromie has captured the unique aesthetic on the tees. Video after the jump...

The Paintings of Francesca Bifulco

Juxtapoz // Saturday, June 30, 2012
We love being blown away on a Saturday morning, and the paintings of Rome, Italy and USA-based fine artist Francesca Bilfuco are full of incredible skill and unique styles, we just can't help but want to get on a plane and fly to her show in Tokyo this August. 

Life Swimmer by REMED

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 22, 2012
Remed has a way with mixing styles from past and present, and when he paints a mural there is no confusion to who is responsible. Not one to cover an entire wall in paint, his minimalist approach is just as effective. He recently created the following mural in San Benedetto, Italy using acrylic on concrete blocks. Be on the lookout for an upcoming feature with Remed in our printed magazine.

Ericailcane Mural in Modena, Italy

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 08, 2012
Italian street muralist, Ericailcane, recently painted what looks to us like a rugged hamster holding on tight to some gold coinage in the city of Modena. Why he has a noose around his neck is a mystery?

Thread and Nail portraits by Pamela Campagna

Juxtapoz // Thursday, May 24, 2012
It should never be easy with portrait art. Italian artist Pamela Campagna creates portraits by putting nails into a wooden board and then using thread to create the figurative elements of the face and body. Geometric patterns make expressions, and we wish there was a video to go with these to see how she plots each piece from start to finish.
